Gigo is a static website generator written in Go allowing web developers to write websites in core HTML, JS and CSS while benefiting from features missing in HTML 5 such as including and reusing pages. When using Gigo there is no need to learn a custom templating language. Just work with the standards core HTML, JS and CSS and write portable websites.
HTML specification does not offer a way of including pages and Gigo resolves this simply and elegantly.
Gigo is open source and available on GitHub.
Gigo has the following features:
- Tag <gigo-include file=* /> : includes other HTML pages in the page using this tag.
- Tag <gigo-include-in file=* /> : the page using this tag asks to be included in another template page, reducing further code duplications.
- It is written in Go and comes with a binary which is self-contained and does not require the installation of a third party library or SDK.
- Because it does not rely on a database, you can commit your work in GIT and generate anytime a static website using gigo binary.
Gigo was developed by Reactive Tech Limited and Alex Arica as the lead developer.
